Ghee roast is a famous mangalorean delicacy, its fiery red in colour with a perfect balance of tanginess ,spicyness and mild flavours of spices. Here ghee is used in large amount to cook the meat or veggies along the masalas till semi dry so the name “ghee roast” ❤
Usually we all have seen and tasted ghee roast in red masala which tastes heavenly and loved by almost all 😍…. But few months back i came across this amazing green ghee roast in one of the famous mangalorian resturant and i fell in love with it,it was so yum that the taste still lingers in my mouth . I just couldn’t stop eating it😋…. i just wanted to make it and enjoy at home ,so what i did is i started guessing ingredients with each bite, …and a recipe just followed in my mind ,then i gooled for this green masala ghee roast but couldnt find it anywhere, then after months i just decided to make using my knowledge on ghee roast as the taste was still fresh in my mind 😃 and i succeeded successfully in my experiment 💃…,i wont say it exactly matches the one I tasted in resturant but nothing less to it 😃 ,i learnt something new ,my family loved and enjoyed it and i was very happy😊.. now this recipe is a hit among my friends and family members too😃
